The Monday papers

Luckily for me this blog is posted in West Coast time, so I made it under
the wire for March 31. Bye-bye March, you big old month you. As the Beatles said,
"I've got nothing to say, but it's O.K., good morning, good morning, good morning."

I taught all day today, so I have pretty well used up my words. I hope you had a good start to the week. It was incredibly foggy
here, and raining softly most of the day. At Seneca I love how the dark, wet trees loom out of a thick swirl of pale grey fog on a day like today. The whole world was wet and mysterious, and excited seagulls filled the sky, backed up with trilling red-wing blackbirds. The bird kingdom seemed to think it was a good day.

On the Allen snow mountain is still there, but
smaller, and covered in brown earth from the roads.
It's a good thing it's melting slowly.

This is an image of a small Bear River painting
from the latest show. I think it's 12"x12".

Have a enchanting evening.

Wow....your painting of Bear River is an inspiration. It looks just like it!!
Barbara, it is impressive and amazing that you are so prolific with your wonderful writings and paintings and insights. Are you sure you're still working full time or are you just sleeping 2 hours a night?

Hi Flora,

I'm working for sure. I'm glad you
like the Bear River painting. There's something so lyrical about
your photos, they make me want to
paint. I saw one like that today.

Thanks for letting me.
